Antique Asian Foo Dog Sterling Silver Pendant w/ Bell Necklace - image 1 of 5

This antique Asian Foo dog pendant necklace is made of sterling silver and he's ready to ward off any evil spirits that dare to come near you.

In Asian folklore, it's believed that a dog can bite evil spirits and is therefore worn for protection.

This dog also has a bell dangling from his leg. It too is a symbol of protection as the sound of bells terrifies evil spirits. The Chinese word for 'bell' is zhong, which also means 'hitting the mark'. So the zhong also stands for 'hitting the mark' of success. This is a pendant of positivity.

Yes, there's a lot of Asian symbolism in this old Foo dog pendant. His tail even looks like a wing...so he can fly off and away from evil.

The pendant measures 1 3/4 inches across by 2 1/8 inches long. It weighs 9.3 grams. With the sterling 18-inch chain it's 17.5 grams.

Symbolism aside, this old pendant is unique and features a cute Foo dog (some are kind of scary looking as they ward off evil but this one does it with a good attitude).

Pendant necklace is in excellent antique condition. We hope it adds some good zhong to your life.
